Tile Wizards share our secrets for tiling your outdoor area
We have created a list that everyone should consider when choosing what to tile your outdoor setting. Read on to find out what they are.
Where are you going to install your tiles?
Are they going to be used on the wall or the floor? Will they be undercover or out in the open, meaning they will be rained on? Does the area to be tiled experience heavy foot traffic? Will you need to consider gripping if it’s a slip or non-slip surface? These are all things you need to think about when choosing your outdoor tiles.
What Style are you going for?
Maybe you want to go for a natural stone look, a chic style, or the wood-look – the choice is yours. It’s important to also consider the colour of your house, and whether you want to match it or contrast it.
Nothing is worse than walking outside on a beautiful sunny day and have bright sunlight reflect from the tiles straight to your eyes. To avoid such discomfort, our secret is to choose lighter coloured tiles for low light areas, and darker tiles for areas that are exposed to a lot of light. Dark tiles can look absolutely gorgeous if your outdoor area is well lit, but if your space is not light and bright, the same tiles might make it look dark, mundane, and old.
